Warmup #21

800 word challenge:
In honor of my wife: Write a romantic scene: either true love (think Princess Bride), or angst (Troi and Riker in Star Trek: The Next Generation, Mulder and Scully, Mal and Inara, Kaylee and Simon, The Doctor and Rose (or almost any other of his companions, really), Aragorn and Eowin. No examples in prose come to mind; I must be reading the right kind of books.)

Warmup #19

800 word challenge:
Make an argument in favor of something horrible (genocide), or against something wonderful (kittens).
Obviously, you don’t need to choose genocide or kittens. I’ll leave it up to your personal preference, but remember that kittens rock.
